Eucharistic Healing Service, 17th August 2022 7:30pm -9:00pm

Following the previous healing service which had the international best-selling ex-gangster, John Pridmore, we are excited to present another extraordinary service this August. It features Rev Fr. John Baptist Bashobora, a charismatic Catholic priest known for his prayer, deliverance, and healing ministry that sees him travel around the world, preaching the Good News and healing those in need. He also runs a foundation, the Father Bash Foundation, that provides housing, schooling & medical care for nearly 20,000 children in his home country, Uganda. This healing service promises to be like no other and we invite you to come experience God's love and the healing power of the Holy Spirit. Image -

A Celebration of our vibrant multicultural parish community.

Holding on Sunday, 17th of July, it begins with the Holy Mass at 10 am followed by reception immediately after Mass at the parish hall. The Holy Mass would be said in different languages to depict the various cultures present in the parish whilst parishioners are encouraged to attend in their native attires / cultural outfits. The reception promises to showcase food, drinks, and activities depicting the various cultures and there is an ongoing 50-50 raffle that would be won on that day, with the winner taking home half of the entire pot. There would also be a barbecue stand, an Ice cream van, and a bouncing castle. It promises to be a wonderful celebration and all are invited to attend with family and invite friends as we would be delighted to welcome you. Opportunities are also available to those willing to get involved in planning/organizing or who wish to bring along some food/costume. You may reach us via the link below or through our social media handles.

What we believe

‘For God so loved the world that he gave his only-begotten Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.’ John 3:16

We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, that he came to show us the art of living, to offer us forgiveness and to reconnect us with the love of God, our creator. We believe that through His Church, Jesus continues to change the lives of those who encounter Him.

COVID-19 and your visit to church

We would love you to be aware of these, whilst visiting our church:

Face masks and hand gels are optional, and continue to be provided at the entrance of the church.
Offer of peace is also optional.
The Body of Christ continues to be offered usually by hand.

Thank you for your co-operation.
